What is the current 200m sprint world record?
Usain Bolt boasts the men's 100m and 200m records and ran the latter in 19.19 seconds at the 2009 World Championships.
Florence Griffith-Joyner of the United States still holds the record in the women's race with her 21.34s at the 1988 Summer Olympics yet to be broken.

Why is Usain Bolt not competing at Tokyo 2020?
It's the question a lot of people might be wondering when they see the line-up for the men's final.
But Bolt is no longer actively competing having retired in 2017.
Having made a clean sweep of the 100m and 200m events at the 2008, 2012 and 2016 Olympic Games, Bolt called time on his career the following year.
The Jamaican sprinter last competed at the 2017 World Championships, when he finished third in his last solo 100m race, opted out of the 200m, and pulled up in the 4x100m relay final with a hamstring injury.
